a clean bill of health for obama care. deputy senior adviser from the white house joins me from the north lawn. david, thank you very much. you set a fairly low bar, this vague working for majority that want to sign on and 50,000 could be served at one time, 800,000 in a day. is that good enough? what's the next step? >> so andrea, as you know, this is going to be a process of continuous improvement. compared to where we were in early october as jeff said yesterday it is night and day to the point we can handle a certain number of concurrent users. we're monitoring to make sure the system is stable, the response times are good, the error rates are continuously going down. we've set up a queueing system for those instances where there's overwhelming volume on the system to better manage the flow. we've set up anonymous shopping right on the home page of healthcare.gov so people can look at plans in a much more comprehensive way. based on what we learn, we continue to make these improvements. so by the time we get to the end of open enrollment march 31st, as many people who want to sign up

: hi. think obama is a little bit nonchalant about health care. if we cannot appeal this lot right now, wait until he gets out of office and then appeal law. too many people are suffering. thank you. host: should someone be fired? rose, are you there? daniel, washington, dc. democrat. what do you think? should the president hold somebody accountable and fire someone? i think the people he would fire, he does not have the executive reach to do. this is a republican chief justice that voted -- that had the swing vote. essentially it is insurance reform. he does not have the reach to fire insurance company executives. moderatelydly, republican health care reform -- it is getting a little bit more insurance for a little but more people. he is trying to exercise measure and judgment to see it follow- through. staying the course and policy is ihis think what he should do. on your point about the politics, that is the headline in the wall street journal. report -- it says later on in the article gavea recent poll republicans a narrow edge on the question of which party voters would like to se

is that comes down to politics. when president obama was elected, congress started working on the health-care bill that ended up being the affordable care act. they ruled out single-payer from the beginning. no one really put a lot of muscle behind it in congress. among other things, it is fairly obvious to point out that the health-insurance industry is a big powerful industry and they have a lot of employees. to do something like single- payer would disrupt all of that. not to mention, i have been thinking about this since the furor a month ago with plans getting canceled. at least a few million people who got the letters from the insurance companies that they could not keep their insurance from this year into next year and everybody freaked out -- if you did single-payer, literally everybody would get a letter like that. if i were a member of congress i would look at it as 2 million levels -- 2 million letters, and i would wonder what it would be like if it was 170 million or more. our intermediaries in the form of insurance companies, that may add some cost to the equation. one thing that
